Competing for AUSTRALIA in 
LAHTI 2017 World Championships 
2018 Winter Olympics

Firstly I would like to thank each and everyone of you who have helped me on my way to become an Australian citizen so that I may represent Australia in the next World Championship 2017 and PyoengChang Olympics 2018.

And now, EXCITING NEWS - I officially became an Australian citizen and Australian passport holder on the 7th of October 2017 - now I can represent Australia in the upcoming European season of Visma Ski Classic, World Cup, World Championship in Lahti and Winter Olympic Games 2018.

I’ve been reselected on the Pioneer Investment -  Pro Team with Lukas Bauer (CZE) and we are competing in the Visma Ski Classic circuit around Europe. If you want to watch the races live visit:
  http://www.vismaskiclassics.com or follow me on our team web site:

I will join my team at the Team Training Camp in Sweden in the beginning of November.
The season for me will start on 27th Nov and I will be competing in almost all of the Visma Ski Classics races.

Secondly I will represent Australia XC at the DAVOS World Cup on 10th DECEMBER and then I’m planning to start my 7th 'Tour De Ski' ( I've completed  in 6 full TDS in my career, the last one being in season 2013/2014 ) - find attached racing plan.

I have recently discovered that I will need to finance Davos WC and all TDS competitions myself ( coach, accommodation, travel costs, ski technician, airfares,training camps, ...) The costs are  around $10.000 . I've saved as much as I could in my last season in Perisher, but unfortunately there is still a shortfall.

I’m prepared to do my utmost for Australian Cross Country Skiing, to be the absolute best I can be and to help contribute to a brighter future for all Australian athletes and recreational skiers alike.

I would like to ask for your assistance in helping me reach my 2017 goals and would be most grateful to have you on board and share my results with you.

Thank you once again.
